The list of auctioning operations can get quite long if wanting to set up auctioning based on multiple items going into the craft of an item (example is DMF cards and decks). It would be great is we could "group" our operations into sub-operations (not sure if that's the correct wording). Then we could collapse certain operation "groups" when working in this tab. This would also be very handy implemented on the shopping tab. Thank you for your consideration.

Older idea, but I think this is actually pretty great. To expand on this:
Make the behavior of operations be similar to how Groups work - child groups naturally inherit the traits of the parent group unless they specifically select to override the inherited default.
This way if you have a bunch of operations that are basically the same but only differ in one aspect it's easier and quicker to set up these operations and maintain them later as you refine your setup.
Right now the way to set these up is to use the Copy/Duplicate functionality on operations and then manually change what needs to be different in the new operation. This works pretty well, it's straightforward, no real complaints - but when you want to maintain your operations later on you have to remember to go back through everything and change it everywhere or remember to manually set up the "Link to Another Operation". This process is a little tiresome - especially since after you link one field to another operation TSM resets the view to be on the base tab of the operation you were on. This gets very tiresome very quickly when linking a large number of fields on later tabs.
If Operations management/organization gets changed to be more like the Groups behavior, this would greatly expand the ability to finely tune all sorts of different operations without adding in the overhead of maintaining a potentially large number of operations.
